Zack Snyder has tweeted (twat?) our first look at Ben Affleck in the Batman costume, alongside the new Batmobile! The photo on top is his original, the middle is one I lightened up in Photoshop.
While I’m loving the Dark Knight Returns inspiration, I’m scared that the man-in-a-rubber-suit vibe I’m getting is a big step backwards. With the Nolan films (and even the Arkham games), we’ve moved beyond the need for a sculpted rubber suit. The body armor style has proven itself to work better on film & for more flexibility of the actors. I mean.. can he even rest his arms at his sides? [Side note: It could very well be the black & white nature of this photo giving it that sculpted rubber look and have more of that fabric Man of Steel feel.]
The last photo is the movie I REALLY wanna see, though!
